We remember The Band Perry with their huge hit "If I Die Young."
In August of 2016 they were addressing rumors that they were going pop after signing with a record label generally associated with pop music (Lady Gaga is one of their artists).
The sibling trio turned to social media on Thursday evening (Feb. 2) to announce that they have recorded their first pop album, titled My Bad Imagination.
A post to the group’s Twitter page reads as follows:
To our fans —
We’ve made an album for you. Creating it has been the most exciting thing we’ve ever done. It’s led us to disrupt everything that was comfortable and familiar to us a short year ago. If there’s one thing we’ve learned in making it it’s this — being yourself matters. It matters even when not everyone agrees that you should be or understands why it’s important that you are.
The album is called My Bad Imagination. It’s our very first pop album and tonight the first single track will be out everywhere, it’s called Stay In the Dark. Listen loud.
Thank you for your love, your patience and for your trust. Come with us.
Then they showed up on The Tonight Show with a new look, new sound, new song: "Stay In The Dark."
Social media is saying they've left their roots--and fans--behind. That may be true. I can only tell you this: I love this song ALOT. What remains to be seen if they will return to their country roots or is this the new direction?
